An Acton, Ont. man faces charges for allegedly throwing a hand-sized block of “scrap steel” through the window of another vehicle and endangering the adults and two kids inside, Halton Regional Police said Wednesday.
A woman, man and their two young daughters were travelling in a single eastbound lane on Hwy. 7 in Halton Hills on Monday just after 10 a.m. when a black Ford Ranger pickup truck came baring down on them from behind and began tailgating them, the driver apparently wanting to pass, Det.-Sgt. Nick Milinovich said.
The slower vehicle was not moving fast enough for the driver of the pickup and there was “an exchange” between people in the two vehicles, with the pickup following the family’s vehicle “too closely” for a short period of time, he said.
